Your ribbons will be permanently formed in a nice spiral that you can then attach together on the elastic band or clip.  Use your school or team colors and POOF!  You just made a korker or simple cheer bow.
Now that the cheer hair bows are either purchased or made, it is important to know how to care for and clean them.
This article will discuss the care and cleaning of cheer hair bows as well as some tips if you decide to make your own.
You can also steam clean cheer hair bows by holding them over a boiling pan of water with tongs.
Whether they are purchased or handmade, cheer hair bows should add sparkle and set the team apart from the rest.
A great type of fabric for cheer hair bows is grosgrain ribbon.

 Iron the fabric (with the ribbon under) being sure that the heat ‘n bond adheres to the ribbon.
 Be sure to place the ribbon right in the center and iron them together.
 Cross the ribbon making sure to line up with the center mark.
 Don’t tighten the zip tie all the way, zip it loosely so you can be sure the ribbon looks nice and is in the right place.
 The reason for using heat ‘n bond is so that there is no need to pin the ribbon together.
 Hot glue one end to the hair band area, wrap the ribbon around and hot glue the other end on top of the ribbon.
 Starting at the center point of the ribbon and the point where it crosses, begin gathering the ribbon at the center.
 Mark the center of the ribbon by folding it in half, end to end.
 Place the medium size ribbon over the large ribbon.
 Clip the end at about a 45 degree angle to create the "V" shape at the end of the ribbon.
 Zig zag stitch the small ribbon onto all ribbons.
 To keep the ribbon from burning, it’s a good idea to put a piece of fabric over the ribbon.
 The 3in ribbon is the most important size, the others can coordinate with the large ribbon.
 Be careful not to get glue all over the ribbon.
 Just pass the flame near the ribbon to slightly melt the edges.
 This process keeps the ribbon from fraying.
 The finished ribbon looks something like this.
 Once the ribbon is pulled together and gathered, use the zip tie to secure the ribbon together.
 Zig zag stitch along the inside ribbon.
 Once you like the position of the ribbon, zip the tie as tight as it will go.

Wrap the side pieces of the center ribbon to the back and trim any extra.  Leave enough to wrap around and glue around the pony tail holder.

You need to cover up that zip tie so you can either trim a small piece of your thicker ribbon to glue over the black zip tie or you can purchase a second ribbon in the same color or a contrasting color to cover up the center.
Probably a $5 investment total (assuming you already have glue, a lighter and ponytail elastics) and you can make a few of these bows per spool of ribbon.
If you do decide to get a second spool of ribbon to use for the center piece, please note the ribbon might not match exactly.
If you forget or don’t want to use the zip tie, you can also just hot glue the ponytail holder to the back of the ribbon and that works as well.
For this pink hair bow I did buy a second spool of ribbon in exactly the same color and once I glued it on the color tones were just slightly off.

( Tip: For measuring, lay out a 12 inch ruler and mark off the start & finish points of a 36-inch line, this way you do not need to measure every single piece individually).
Take your accent color duct tape piece and lay down right in the center of your main color piece.
Line up the third duct tape piece and place directly over your overlap.
Cut four 36 inch strips of your main (not accent) color duct tape.
Use your second half of accent tape and place on your elastic about 1 – inch up, then start wrapping around your bow starting from the back.
Cut a 6-inch piece of your accent duct tape and rip in half.
